  • Over the last two decades we have studied the mechanical properties of teeth: the hard outer covering of enamel and to a lesser degree the softer mid-layer of dentin. We have found significant variations in the hardness and stiffness of human molar enamel, and we have correlated these changes with trends in the local chemistry and organic content. In addition, we have identified similar trends in monkey teeth and human incisors.

  • This DTRA (Defense Threat Reduction Agency) project develops a combination of reactive materials and biocidal compounds for the purpose of bioagent defeat. The reactive material is nano-layered metallic particles that reach very high temperatures when reacted and produce a significant amount of heat in the process. This heat is used to decompose an iodine-containing compound, resulting in a release of iodine gas, which is a known biocide.

  • This DARPA project studies architectural and microstructural optimization of 3D Woven structural materials. To develop novel structural materials in a far more rapid and efficient manner, we use topological optimization methods to predict ideal material architectures and novel textile processing to fabricate those architectures. The designed and manufactured 3D Woven materials possess superior permeability, stiffness, and heat transfer properties.

  • This DoD project investigates and characterizes the microstructural evolution of magnesium and magnesium alloys under high temperatures and severe plastic deformation. Electron backscatter detection, X-ray diffraction, and conventional microscopy are being used together with serial sectioning to study the microstructure of magnesium following thermo-mechanical processing.

  • This DoD project studies very high strain rate mechanical testing of Mg alloys with concurrent electron microscopy. The current approach aims to utilize high-performance piezoelectric actuators to load a thinned sample at strain rates from 102 – 104 s-1.

  • This NSF project aims to build on our previous work and established capability using nanocalorimeters to study intermetallic reactions. The theory developed in the project will be a notable improvement on our existing understanding of how nucleation occurs in sharp concentration gradients, with the experiments representing the first rigorous and systematic verification of such a model.
